Hans Olsen's timeless rocking chair with its beautiful woven back, designed in the 50s, is a perfect example of the genre. The renowned Danish architect created a simple, yet sophisticated design, which will look great in any home, where a love of design and natural materials play a major role in the décor. The back is hand-woven in cane – strong shavings from the inner pith of the rattan palm – in a simple, airy pattern which, together with the simple wooden frame, lends the rocking chair a light appearance. Beautiful from all angles, the Swing Rocking Chair combines aesthetics and comfort with elegant details such as a headrest and a seat cushion, making the rocking chair comfortable to sit in, even for long periods of time. The headrest and seat cushion come in leather or sustainable Kvadrat Re-wool fabric, true to the spirit of this timeless design. Choose from the highest quality aniline leather and curated fabrics from the Warm Nordic universe. The wooden frame comes in several different surface treatments.

Hans Olsen
Hans Olsen’s (1919-1992) remarkable designs from the 1950s are vivid examples of the beautiful diversity of Danish Modernism. This Danish architect and industrial designer took on the classic virtues of the Academy of Fine Arts and the great master, Kaare Klint, but opted for a more playful and experimental approach to furniture design. Hans Olsen challenged contemporary production methods and much of his inspiration came from the opportunities offered by moulding wood.
